4-6 oz: Offer 4 to 6 ounces (120-180 ml) every four hours and adjust from there. At this age solid foods may be offered from a spoon with baby sitting upright. Best of luck!

Not normal: You should get him checked out by your doctor. In the meanwhile, try avoiding milk (use hydrolyzed milk formula) altogether and see if this helps.
